Generating web graphics from Illustrator used to be a tedious process that involved creating web slices (pieces) of the art, then saving those slices in a web-optimized format. Adobe has made that process much simpler. A typical workflow when building a website is for a designer to create the look and feel of the site and then hand off the various graphic elements and type specifications to a programmer for assembly in an application such as Dreamweaver, where the HTML code defines the elements that make up the web page, and an associated CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) file defines the appearance of those elements. With Creative Cloud, Illustrator introduced a CSS Properties Panel that streamlines the process for both the designer and programmer.
This technique applies to Illustrator CC versions
